The award-winning film Bitter Cane was filmed secretly in Haiti during the dictatorship of Jean-Claude (“Baby Doc”) Duvalier by a collective of Haitian and American filmmakers  Most of the Haitians were affiliated with the Mouvement Haitien de Libération. To protect their identities, the filmmakers created a fictional director – “Jacques Arcelin.”  Now we can reveal their true identities at last. Given the brutal violence and chaos that plagues Haiti, this film’s insights are tragically relevant.
